This is a warm and friendly pub located on the main road heading out of Eastbourne. Although a limited menu the £2 lunch advertised was excellent value for money which was apparent by the number of diners.

With 4 lagers and 3 bitters on draft there is plenty of choice for the beer drinker.

The staff are friendly and welcoming and I will defiantly be stopping for lunch next time I'm passing.

The public bar in this pub has a pool table and a dartboard along with a plasma screen which was turned off even though there was live football on so I gather that there is no Sky Sports. There were only two other young customers in attendance who seemed to be enjoying the old skool dance music that was being emitted from the speakers.

The main bar also has a dartboard by the entrance and another pool table is found in the extension on the side of the pub which leads to a good sized beer garden strewn with picnic tables, although this does run along the main road. There is a projector screen which was being used for a mid afternoon session of karaoke and the manageress and the few locals in attendance were all reasonably good singers. Unfortunately I cannot stand karaoke and especially when it’s the same people getting up to sing. One of the singers even had his own CD so I think that I walked into a meeting of the die hard Eastbourne karaoke club. Once the karaoke had finished at around 18:00 the dance music from the public bar was then playing throughout the building. This and the fact that the closing times are advertised as 12:30 Monday – Thursday, 1:30 Friday/Saturday and midnight on Sunday lead me to believe that this is more of a party pub for a younger crowd.

There is a standard draught selection and as this is a Greene King pub it was no surprise to see IPA and Abbot, but there was also Belhaven Best which I had not seen before. I didn’t try It though as I was on the Guinness which was well served by the friendly barman.

I have to say that I was disappointed with this pub and I see no reason to return.
